COLLEGE PRESIDENT'S 
AVELCOME 

September is a time for two kinds of 
welcome to be extended by Mary- 
ville College: one to old students 
returning to meet friends and to 
walk familiar paths; one to new 
students, many of whom wonder 
what the place, the people, and the 
life will be. 

I am happy to extend both of these 
welcomes on this page. May the 
college year of 1937-1938 become a 
year of growth for all who live and 
study near "Chilhowee's lofty moun- 
tains." 

Ralph Waldo Lloyd, 
President of Maryville College. 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



THE EDITORIAL PREFACE 



We of the Editorial Staff take pleasure 
in doing our part to malce you more fa- 
miliar with the campus life of Maryville. 
The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. pub- 
lish this book as a part of their activities 
on the "Hill." Our efforts to give you help 
are only a manifestation of the Maryville 
attitude toward freshmen. You will find that 
upper-classmen are anxious to help you as 
much as they can. This is but a small part 
of the spirit of the college which we have 
learned to love and which we hope you will 
learn to love. 

The information on the following pages 
has been considered essential to a thorough 
understanding of the college. For that rea- 
son we suggest that you read it well. Know- 
ing a few of these facts will relieve that 
somewhat lost feeling always felt in a new 
place. 

As we try to help, we remind you that 
you must do your share of the work, and 
your share is the largest. The pride we have 
in calling Maryville our college you will 
soon understand as you call it your college 
too. 

We wish you as much happiness and suc- 
cess as you desire in the coming year. 

THE EDITORIAL STAFF. 



"M" HANDBOOK 



PART I 



GENERAL INTRODUCTION 
TO MARYVILLE 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO 
MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



AVhen one has really come to know Mary- 
ville by experience any words that might 
be used in describing it seem vain and in- 
adequate. There is something about Mary- 
ville that captivates the affection of even 
the most self-complacent students. One can- 
not stay at Maryville long without feeling 
himself affected by that certain something 
that some have chosen to call the "Mary- 
ville Spirit." What it is we do not know. 
We merely know that it exists. So, as we 
present the general facts about Maryville, 
we do not claim to introduce you to the 
real Maryville. You must experience that 
for yourself. 

Maryville College was founded in 1819 by 
Isaac Anderson to supply the need for an 
educated ministry for the Southwest. The 
school continued with a slow, steady growth 
until the Civil War, which closed the Col- 
lege for five years. In 1866 the institution 
was reopened with a very small enrollment 
which, however, grew very rapidly. The en- 
rollment, in 1900 was about 400, of whom 
only 80 were of college rank. Last year 
829 students, all of them of college rank, 
were enrolled. 

Through the years the function of the 
College has changed to suit the varying 
needs of the people it served. About ten 
years ago the preparatory department was 
discontinued and the College became what 
it is now. a liberal arts college providing 
a cultural background. Maryville is on the 



"M" HANDBOOK 11 

approved list of the Association of Ameri- 
can Universities and offers to the student 
who will work an education comparable to 
any to be obtained anywhere in the country. 

The city of Maryville ic situated sixteen 
miles south of Knoxville. Tennessee, in a 
section of the country rich in historical lore 
and tradition. It has an elevation of 1,000 
feet, and, besides being one of the gateways 
to the Great Smoky Mountains National 
Park, is quite near the recently completed 
Norris Dam project of the Tennessee Valley 
Authority. The population of Maryville is 
5,000, with another 5.000 living in Alcoa, a 
twin community named for the Aluminum 
Company of America, which operates its 
largest factory there. 

The territory surrounding Maryville offers 
much in the way of beautiful scenery. From 
the campus can be seen the heights of the 
Great Smokies, the Chilhowees, and the 
Cumberlands, green in spring and often 
white with snow in winter. You will have 
opportunity to visit the mountains many 
times. Various campus organizations spon- 
sor overnight hikes to these places of in- 
terest. Plan to take advantage of these 
opportunities. 

As for the campus we would venture to 
!-ay that there are few more beautiful in 
the country. A definite program of campus 
beautification has been in progress during 
the past three years. Hundreds of small 
trees and shrubs have been added to the 
campus; a new circular drive is soon to be 
completed; and numerous other improve- 
ments are being made. Included in the 
campus is an extensive College woods of 



MARTVILLE COLLEGE 



pine and fir. Here, very near the Collegre 
botanical gardens, is a huge, natural amphi- 
theatre in which the beautiful and impres- 
sive May Day pageant is given each year. 
Included also on the campus is a nine-hole 
golf course. 

There are twenty buildings on the campus, 
the principal ones being described in the 
school catalogue. You will find no diffi- 
culty in becoming located, however, for 
within a few days after your arrival you 
will know them as well as the upper-class- 
men do. 

As from the very beginning of the College 
Maryville aims to lay positive emphasis on 
religion and morals. Students are required 
to attend Sunday school and church. At- 
tendance at daily chapel services is also re- 
quired. The College is organically related 
to the Presbyterian Church, U. S. A., but 
it is not sectarian in purpose or program, 
and students attend the church of their own 
choice. The leading denominations have 
churches in Maryville. More will be added 
about the churches on a later page. 

There are no social fraternities at Mary- 
ville and no dancing, as it is not felt that 
they are necessary or in harmony with the 
general aims and purposes of the school. 
Howevei', there will be plenty of social ac- 
tivity, sponsored by the two "Y's", the 
Student Council, and various other organiza- 
tions and clubs. There are four societies, 
two for men and two for women, each of 
which presents a short, entertaining pro- 
gram every Saturday night. 

To give an indication of the activities on 
the "Hill" we will list some of the clubs. 



"M" HANDBOOK 13 

The vocational clubs, mainly for study and 
fellowship along particular lines, are: Stu- 
dent Volunteers, Ministerial Association, 
Pre-Medical Club, Law Club, Chemistry- 
Physics Club, and the Language Clubs. Be- 
sides these clubs there are the various state 
clubs composed of students from the same 
section of the country, a Shakespeare Club, 
and honor societies for athletics, debate, 
dramatics, and scholarship. More detailed 
descriptions of some of these clubs will be 
given later. There are also other clubs not 
mentioned which will welcome you to their 
membership as you qualify and feel inclined 
to join. Club membership is not essential 
but it always proves helpful and worthwhile. 
However, don't just be a "joiner." When 
you join a club support your club. 

One of the advantages that everyone who 
comes to Maryville enjoys is the wide con- 
tact that is possible within the limits of 
the campus. Students come from thirty-six 
states as widely separated as Massachu- 
setts, Florida, and California. Last year 
two foreign countries were represented, 
chiefly by members of missionaries' families. 
The enlarged vision, the more sympathetic 
understanding, and the new interests gained 
by these contacts are among the many 
values found at Maryville. 

A general introduction to Maryville Col- 
lege would not be complete without a word 
about sports records and the athletic de- 
partment. Maryville, last year, won the 
state wrestling championship for the fifth 
consecutive year. The "Scotties" also copped 
the Smoky Mountain Conference titles in 
basketball, and track. When you come to 



14 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

Maryville be a loyal supporter of the Orange 
and Garnet. The teams will appreciate 
your encouragement. Football starts the 
athletic program off at the opening of . 
school in September, and athletic activity 
continues throughout the year. 

When you arrive in Knoxville, either in 
the bus or in the train station, look for 
someone with a Maryville tag. They will 
be glad to direct you over to Maryville. 
Then when you arrive on the campus, go 
to one of the information desks or tables 
staffed by members of the Y. W. and Y. 
M. C. A. Make yourself known to them 
and they will direct you to your dormitory. 
There, other students will help you with 
your baggage and assist you in finding your 
room. There will probably be some con- 
fusion, but it won't take you long to get 
your bearings. 

New students are continually surprised 
and impressed in finding such a friendly 
spirit in evidence at Maryville. As a gen- 
eral thing new students expect to be the 
under-dogs, but this is not the case at 
Maryville. There is no hazing or mistreat- 
ing of the new students. You will find the 
upper-classmen ready and willing to help 
you in every possible way. Ask them ques- 
tions, borrow from them until your trunk 
arrives — they won't mind. It's the Mary- 
ville spirit. The new girls will be especial- 
ly taken care of by their "big sisters", 
arranged for by the Y. W. C. A. As for 
new fellows you won't be assigned a "big 
brother," but you will be "big-brothered". 

Now that we have given you this general 
introduction we urge you to come to Mary- 
ville prepared to make friends and to spend 
the happiest four years that you have ever 
experienced.

Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 



DEAR FRIEND: 

Greetings to you from the Y. M. C. A.! 
We are looking- forward to your arrival in 
Maryville, Of course College life is quite 
different from what you are used to, and 
you will have many problems during the 
first days and weeks. We hope you will 
let us help you with them, whether they be 
big or little. Each officer and member of 
the "Y" cabinet is ready to be of service. 

College, like many other things in life, 
will be of greater worth to you if you come 
with the thought of constantly seeking the 
best in life, and at the same time of giving 
your best. And the Y. M. C. A. can help 
you in all this. We firmly believe in the 
teachings of Christ as the ideal guide both 
in our "Y" work and in our personal living. 
The "Y" programme stresses the four-fold 
life, and gives special emphasis to the needs 
that are not filled by other organizations on 
the campus. We hope you will take part in 
the activities sponsored by the "Y"— the 
interclass athletics, the worship services, the 
hikes, banquets, and other events. First of 
all is the pow-wow on the Saturday night 
after school opens. 

Please accept this as a personal invita- 
tion to the "Y" headquarters in Bartlett 
Hall. And in the meantime, if you have 
any questions you would like to ask, write 
me in care of Maryville College. 

Sincerely yours. 
MARVIN MINEAR. 
Y. M. C. A. President.

Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 



WELCOME. NEW GIRLS! 

We could go on ad infinitum telling you 
what Maryville has come to mean to us — 
the beauty of the campus, fine friendships, 
contacts with splendid persons older and 
wiser than we, the fun of it all — but why 
should we, when you're soon to give it your 
first-hand interpretation? We are glad you 
are to become a part of that which goes by 
the delightful all-inclusive title of "college 
life," and especially here at Maryville! 

At fixst you may be a little bewildered by 
the strangeness of a new place, new people; 
but we hope you will let us of Y. W. help 
you — whether to lay the legend of the col- 
lege seal, to show the way through the 
mazes of registration, or to find Avith you 
a quiet moment in one of our worship 
services. 

We believe that you are needed, that there 
is a place for each of you here on the Hill. 
Our "Y" emblem itself symbolizes our striv- 
ings for the best there is to give to that 
place in campus life — growth physically, 
mentally, socially, with spiritual growth in 
and through all these phases. With such a 
purpose we can all work together to realize 
our best, and so we welcome you to our 
Y. ^V. fellowship and comradeship — and to 
Maryville! 

Sincerely yours.

\'. M. C. A. ACTIVITY 



The Y. M. C. A. endeavors to lead on the 
campus in every phase of college life. The 
cabinet is chosen with the end in view of 
having campus leaders working for the "Y." 
You will find that the Y. M. C. A. as a 
whole consists of hard-working, progressive 
young men with whom you will want to 
work or have good timies. 

The "Y" sponsors interclass athletics in 
football, basketball, baseball, track, and 
swimming. Tournaments are also conducted 
in handball, boxing, wrestling, ping-pong, 
tennis and badminton. 

The semi-annual mountain hikes and ban- 
quets are naturally among the most popular 
features of the "Y" program. 

In Bartlett Hall — the "Y" headquarters — 
will be found the reading and game rooms. 
Here there is a good radio, current mag- 
azines, and newspapers. Games including 
pool, ping-pong, checkers, chess, and domi- 
noes are here for your entertainment. 

The Sunday afternoon meetings in Bartlett 
Hall are the times when we try to reach 
decisions on the vital issues of life. These 
meetings are brief, interesting, instructive, 
and inspiring. They are featured bj' special 
music, prominent guest speakers, and student 
discussions. They are the hub of the "Y" 
program. 

Every year the Y. M. cabinet, along with 
the Y. W. Cabinet, spends a week-end "Re- 
treat" in the mountains in order to plan 
the work of the following year. The motto 
this year is "Let your light so shine — ". 
Join the "Y" and help us in our work. 



•M" HANDBOOK 



Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY 

Maryville's Y. W. C. A. has always en- 
deavored to help girls to find satisfaction 
and peace in Christian living. Keeping this 
main aim ever in view, Y. W. has organized 
such movements as the Nu Gamma Sigma 
groups, Big Sister movements. Peace Forum, 
and participation in the East Tennessee In- 
terracial Commission. 

The Sunday afternoon worship services are 
planned to give inspiration and help. Prob- 
lems of vital interest to all college girls are 
presented — personal, social, and international 
problems. Both old and new girls have 
opportunity to assist in some part of these 
services, and are greatly benefitted by the 
actual participation. 

Besides the joint activities with the Y. M. 
C. A., the program of Y. W. includes such 
activities as semi-annual tennis tournaments, 
production of the May-Day pageant, social 
service work in the mission chapels and in 
the orphanage, and various social activities 
for its members. The Y, W. rooms are espe- 
cially well adapted and equipped for group 
events or individual relaxation and enjoy- 
ment. All members are invited to use the 
"Y" rooms. 

You will find that the members of the 
"Y" cabinet, the Nu Gamma leaders and 
the Big Sisters are sincere, friendly, and 
willing to help in every way possible. Give 
Y. W. a chance to be your friend and guide, 
and join the old members as they follow 
this year's motto, "Let your light so shine — "

JOINT ACTIVITIES 



Joint Dcvolional Meetings 

LTsually the devotional meetings of the 
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. on Sunday 
afternoons are lield separately, but at vai'i- 
ous times, joint meetings are held, in the 
conduct of which both organizations co- 
operate. 

Peace Forum 

This organization is sponsored by both the 
"Y's" in the effort to make students con- 
scious of world affairs. Through well- 
informed speakers and informal discussion 
groups, an attempt is made to educate for 
peace. 

Blue Ritlg:e Conference 

Each spring, following commencement, a 
conference of Southern college Y. M. C. A.'s 
and Y. W. C. A.'s is held at Blue Ridge. 
North Carolina. The two organizations on 
College Hill regularly send delegates to these 
conferences. 

The Artist Series 

The Artist Series, sponsored jointly by the 
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., consists of 
three numbers each year including musical, 
literary, or other cultural entertainment. 
You will want to attend these progranrs, for 
you pay for them in ^vith your student 
activities fund, and they are of great inter- 
est here at Maryville. 

Barnvvarniing* 

Each year at Thanksgiving the "Y's" put 
on a barnwarming in the alumni gymnasium. 
It's a gala affair and so much fun you won't 
think of missing it.

NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S AVELf OME 



DEAR NEW GIRLS: 

May I present to you the old girls who 
are eagerly looking forward to having you 
with us next year? Emily Post or no, we 
must tell you we're glad to meet you. Just 
how sincerely we mean that you probably 
won't realize until you join us in saying it 
to new girls the following year, but we're 
going to do our best to show you. 

Before you leave for school, you should 
receive a letter from your Nu Gamma leader. 
Through the small, informal gatherings she 
leads the first few weeks, you learn the fine 
points of Maryville custom, talk over your 
current problems, and become better ac- 
quainted with at least nine other new girls. 
Nu Gamma, a branch of Y. W.. was organ- 
ized primarily for j'our benefit, but our share 
enters in. too. It gives us an opportunity 
to know you sooner and to learn what to 
expect from you. Perhaps, it's just a little 
selfishly that we invite you to be Nu Gamma 
girls. 

Wherever you are. New Girl, we say, 
"Welcome to Maryville." 

Sincerely yours, 

HELEN BOBO, 
Nu Gamma Chairman.

GENERAL STUDENT 
ACTIVITY 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



General Student Activity 



On the Maryville College campus there 
are enough organized activities to capture 
the interest and utilize the ability of every 
student. To some of these organizations 
you may belong by merely expressing the 
desire. Some, however, are run on a selec- 
tive membership basis, and in still others, 
such as the honorary fraternities, member- 
ship is a distinction that comparatively few- 
attain. 

Student Council 

The Student Council is composed of eight 
seniors, six juniors, four sophomores, and 
four freshmen. This body is not student 
government, but it represents student opin- 
ion and works with the faculty in promoting 
desirable movements. The members are 
elected by their classes as representing stu- 
dent sentiment. From the Council two com,- 
mittees are chosen, the Student-Faculty 
Committee and the Highland Echo Commit- 
tee. 

NATIONAL HONORARY FRATERNITIES 



Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the distinction of having the 
Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national 
honorary fraternity Pi Kappa Delta. In the 
spring of 1937, representatives went to the 
Provincial Convention at Johnson City. Tenn. 
In the competition there they achieved high 
distinction. 



"M" HANDBOOK 27 

Theta Alpha Phi 

Talented dramatic students may. upon 
meeting certain requirements for member- 
ship, be initiated into the Tennessee Delta 
Chapter of the national honorary dramatic 
fraternity Theta Alpha Phi, located at 
Maryville. 

Sigma Alpha Psi 

The Maryville chapter of Sigma Alpha Psi 
was established in 1930. Membership is open 
to all men of the college "who maintain sat- 
isfactory scholarship and command the re- 
spect of their associates as athletes and 
gentlemen." Membership Is earned by meet- 
ing the requirements of the various athletic 
tests in the presence of a responsible com- 
mittee. The object of the society is the en- 
couragement of the moral, physical, and 
mental development and training among col- 
lege students. 

Local Honorary Fraternity 

Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized in the 
spring of 1934, for the purpose of motivat- 
ing high scholarship among students. Its 
requirements are equal to those of Phi Beta 
Kappa. Ten per cent of the graduating 
class may be admitted provided the mem- 
bers have a grade point ratio of 6.5, or 
somewhat more than a "B" average. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES 



There are on the Hill two sets of literary 
societies. Each set consists of a society for 
boys and one for girls that are known as 
brother and sister societies. Theta Epsilon 



MARTVILLE COLLEGE 



and Bainonian are the sister societies, re- 
spectively, of Alpha Sigma and Athenian. 

All four societies hold regular meetings 
every Saturday night. Each has its respec- 
tive hall. The meetings held here consist 
of short business meetings followed by pro- 
grams of varied sorts in which members of 
the society are expected to take part when 
called upon, in advance, by the program sec- 
retaries. Once a semester each set of so- 
cieties holds a joint meeting in which boys 
and girls co-operate on matters of program, 
decorations, and refreshments. 

At the beginning of the year the women's 
societies sponsor rush weeks to introduce 
new girls to the members of each society. 
At the end of the two weeks taken by the 
rush program new girls are given the op- 
portunity to join either of the societies. 
Both groups are glad to receive new mem- 
bers, and there is a friendly rivalry as to 
which one can attract the larger number. 

Men make their choices as to society 
membership by visiting regular meetings of 
each. 

There is another form of rivalry among 
the societies besides that of membership. 
Each society presents a play during the 
winter known as its mid-winter. A com- 
mittee of judges gives a decision as to the 
relative merits of the plays, and the so- 
ciety presenting the best play is awarded a 
silver cup. The society receiving the cup 
three years in succession is the permanent 
owner of it. Last year Theta Epsilon re- 
ceived the cup. 

We sincerely hope that each new student 
will find a place truly his in one of the 
organizations. Choose the one in which you 
feel you will be happiest after you have 
carefully considered each. Each society 
sends a hearty greeting to every new stu- 
dent.

MUSICAL. ORGANIZATIONS 



The five musical organizations on the 
campus provide an opportunity to develop 
musical talent. Three of the organizations 
are choral and two instrumental. 

The three choral organizations are the 
Vesper Choir, the Maryville Glee Singers, and 
the Women's Glee Club. The Vesper Choir 
is composed of nearly fifty mixed voices 
chosen through try-outs by the choir direc- 
tor. In robes and surplices it serves at the 
Sunday evening services, and on week days 
without the robes leads the daily chapel 
singing. 

The Maryville Glee Singers is a male 
chorus of twenty-five voices. This chorus 
gives at least one concert every year. The 
Women's Glee Club is a similar organization 
for women, and has for the past three years 
presented a light opera in cooperation with 
the men's group. 

The two instrumental organizations are the 
band and orchestra. The orchestra has a 
concert every year and plays at many other 
functions. The band is most active during 
the football season, and lends color and 
entertainment to the games. 



RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS 



Besides Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. 
there are three other outstanding religious 
activities. The Ministerial Association and 
Student Volunteer Band are organizations 
for those interested in the ministry and mis- 
sions respectively. The ministerial group 
holds weekly meetings, but its most im- 
portant activity is that embodied in four 
standing committees which conduct regular 
preaching and pastoral work in the county 
prison, the county almshouse, the McGhee 



MARTVILLE COLLEGE 



Street Chapel, and the country churches in 
the vicinity of Maryville, 

The Student Volunteer group is composed 
not only of those who have pledged them- 
selves to the foreign field, but of those who 
are interested in this form of Christian work. 
Regular meetings of the group are held 
Sunday evenings after vespers. Some phase 
of missionary work is considered, and fre- 
quently missionaries on furlough provide val- 
uable and inspiring first hand material. 

Another religious activity is the annual 
series of February meetings. The first 
series was held in 1877, and they have been 
held every year since. The object of the 
February meetings is a deepening of the 
spiritual life on the campus and a strength- 
ening of the spiritual attitude conducive to 
greater seriousness of thought and action. 
The speaker for the meetings is a. prominent 
religious leader of the day. chosen long be- 
forehand with the purpose of the meetings as 
the objective in selection. 

The annual Fred Hope drives conducted 
by the college are participated in by all stu- 
dents. Fred Hope, a former Maryville stu- 
dent, is the superintendent of a mission 
school in Africa. The funds collected by 
this drive are used in his work. 

There are in Maryville. churches represent- 
ing the leading denominations. They wel- 
come the students of the College into their 
fellowship and strive to serve their various 
needs. Attend the church of your choice, 
and enter into the activities offered.

PART IV 



ATHLETICS 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



MARYVII>LE ATHLETIC POLICY 



Maryville stands for the well-rounded, well 
developed college life. For many years the 
College has realized that one must not only 
be developed mentally and morally but also 
physically. As a result of this realization 
Maryville College holds a high rating among 
the schools of the southeastern states in re- 
gards to athletics. Her teams rank high in 
comparison with colleges of similar size 
throughout the country. Besides having 
inter-collegiate athletics the Y. M. C. A. 
conducts a well-developed, highly organized 
system of intra-mural athletics for men, and 
under the leadership of Mrs. Verton M. 
Queener, coach of women's athletics the 
women have, what is known as, the point 
system. Both of these programs will be 
more fully described later. 

Maryville is the largest institution in the 
Smoky Mountain Conference which is com- 
posed of ten colleges and universities in 
East Tennessee and West North Carolina. 
Although it is not one of the best known 
or largest conferences in the country, few 
conferences have such a high reputation for 
honest and clean sports activity that the 
Smoky Mountain Conference has. Hardly a 
year passes by that does not find Maryville 
at the top of the conference heap in one 
sport or another. Only twice in sixteen j^ears 
has Maryville failed to win the conference 
championship in baseball. During the past 
year Maryville was runner-up in the con- 
ference in track, and basketball. For the 
sixth consecutive year Coach Bob Thrower 
led his "Scottie" wrestlers to the Tennessee 
state wrestling crown. In past years con-_ 
ference titles have been won in football and 
tennis. Besides the numerous titles that are 
won from year to year there has come to 
Maryville the reputation for clean and fair 
playing. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. It 
is not deemed wise to commercialize or over- 
emphasize the athletic feature of the College 



"M" HANDBOOK 



in such a way for then the Maryville ath- 
letic reputation of clean and fair playing 
would be lost. Those who come to Mary- 
ville enter whole-heartedly into the athletic 
program of the College in an effort to win 
prestige both for the college and themselves. 
Places on Maryville teams are won by having 
physical, and average scholastic ability. 
And to have athletic ability is not enough 
for a Maryville College student to be pop- 
ular. He must be well-rounded in all phases 
of his college life in order to be well liked 
by his fellow students. 

The men's athletic program is under the 
direction of Head Coach Lombe S. Honaker. 
assisted by Coaches Bob Thrower and George 
F. Fischbach. Their reputation is known 
throughout the Smoky Mountain Conference 
and the Southern states because of the cal- 
ibre and fighting spirit of the fine teams that 
they produce. Each of these three coaches 
is willing and waiting to try to develop 
your athletic ability in his particular sport. 

For several years Maryville teams have 
been on the schedules of much larger col- 
leges and universities. Although she seldom 
succeeds in defeating these opponests she 
gains experience that is invaluable through- 
out the remainder of that season and in the 
following years. And what is more than 
that — the spectators at these games, or 
matches, or meets, are always impressed by 
the "Scottie" fighting spirit and the clean 
^nd fair playing of Maryville participants. 

If you have any ability at all, as you come 
to Maryville decide to try out for at least 
one of the varsity sports. Perhaps you have 
never fully realized your athletic abilities. 
Athletes are being developed — and even some 
are made — at Maryville each year. And if 
you can't, for some reason or the other, try 
out for the varsity or intra-mural sports, 
give your local support to those who do try 
out for them. After all, the Maryville spirit 
is what you and the other students make it. 
Whether it be on the field or in the stands 
show your sportsmanship by being a loj'al 
"Scottie." 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



VARSITY SPORTS 



Football 



On some Friday night vei'y soon after the 
opening of the academic year, the flood 
lights of Wilson Field will be turned on, the 
"boys" will be out there on the field passing 
and kicking the ball around, the campus 
will be crowded with excited students and 
town people, the band will strike up one of 
the old pep tunes, inaugurating the begin- 
ning of another football season at Maryville 
college. But this season will somehow be 
different because you will be there. From 
the opening kick-off of the first game until 
the final whistle of the last game of the 
season on Thanksgiving Day. there will be 
plenty of action and excitement on Wilson 
Field. 

Coaches Honaker and Thrower begin foot- 
ball practice about two weeks before college 
starts and with the coming of new men the 
squad gradually rounds into shape for the 
opening game with the University of Chat- 
tanooga at Chattanooga. About fifty men 
enter into competition each year for varsity 
positions. The eleven positions are all open. 
If you have the ambition and the ability, one 
of them may be yours before the season is 
over. Report as soon after you come to 
school as possible. Put everything you have 
into making the varsity, but don't get dis- 
couraged if you fail to make it. The 
coaches will still have a personal interest in 
you even though you remain a "scrub" for 
they will want to develop you for the other 
three years of your stay here. 

Make up your mind to get out there and 
show the coaches and the rest of the squad 
what you have. Play squarely and honestly 
with them and you will find that they will 
do the same with you. 



'M" HANDBOOK 



Basketball 

Basketball is one of the sports which 
really holds the interest of the sports en- 
thusiasts throughout the winter months. 
Last season, for the first time in several 
years, Maryville lost the Conference crown 
to Carson-Newman, "the rival," in two hard 
fought games. Maryville dropped them both, 
one by one point, the other by three. 

This sport comes under the direction of 
Coach Lombe S. Honaker, who "knows his 
basketball." During the closing days of 
football season the call is issued, and until 
the end of the football season the captain of 
the team conducts the workouts. After 
Coach Honaker comes out, the squad is 
gradually cut down to about twenty men and 
then the real preparation for the production 
of a smooth, well-balanced quintet is begun 
in earnest. A long schedule with various 
independent and college teams is then begun 
which continues on into March before the 
season is finally ended. 

Although five of the seven lettermen will 
probably return from last year's squad there 
will still be plenty of places left open for 
you if you have the ability. There will be 
plenty of room for improvement. Let us 
see you out to make that basketball varsity. 



Baseball 

Again, in the 1937 season, the Maryville 
baseball team won the Conference champion- 
ship. Only twice in the past sixteen years 
has the Highlander team failed to win this 
title. This is a record that Maryville stu- 
dents may well be proud of, but there is still 
an indication that the team can be improved 
over the past year's team. 

Here is a sport that Maryville is known 
to produce good teams in, not only through- 
out the South but also in such northern 
states as Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. Base- 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



ball also comes under the able tutelage of 
Coach Honaker who is considered to be one 
of the best baseball coaches in this section 
of the country. Some of the exceptionally 
good players who have come under his in- 
fluence have gone up to the big leagues to 
make good. Scouts are always on the watch 
to see what "Honaker has at Maryville." If 
you have any leaning towards baseball 
Coach Honaker wants you for he must needs 
have good material for his championship 
teams of the future. 

Track and Field 

Maryville is widely known as the homing 
place for strong track teams. Although the 
past season was greatly hampered and 
handicapped by the loss of the ace runner 
of the team early in the season, the "Scot- 
ties" were the runners-up in the conference 
meet and placed third in the state meet 
against such competition as the University 
of Tennessee, Sewanee, etc. 

One of the key reasons for the Highlanders 
exceptional track teams is the coaching of 
Bob Thrower. Coach Bob's record for the 
shot put, established when he was a student 
in college, has not been broken and it is the 
oldest of the existing college records held by 
one person. 

Track practice begins about the middle of 
March and it continues until about the first 
or second week in May. Among the six or 
more meets, is the state track and field meet 
and the Smoky Mountain Conference meet. 

You may show your ability in any one or 
more of the track and field events. Take a 
look at those college records, which are 
listed on a later page, and then drive at 
some of them! Perhaps you feel that you 
can already beat some of them. If so re- 
port for the track team for Coach Bob will 
be able to use you.

MINOR VARSITY SPORTS 



Wrestling 

As has already been stated, Maryville won 
the state title in wrestling- for the sixth con- 
secutive year last season. The only defeat 
of the year came from a strong North Car- 
olina team, that of Davidson. Under the 
g-uidance of Coach Thrower the college 
grapplers have built up an enviable record. 
Each year Coach Thrower takes untrained, 
inexperienced men and develops them into 
first class wrestlers. You are bound to fit 
into one of the eight weight class divisions. 
Come out to help Maryville win another 
state championship. 

Swimming 

Maryville is rapidly developing-, under the 
leadership of Coach Georg-e F. Fischbach. one 
of the strongest swimming teams in the 
South. Every year meets are held with 
such teams as Auburn. Emory University, 
University of Kentucky and University of 
Tennessee. Other meets are scheduled with 
conference and non-conference teams. Al- 
though the past season wasn't as perfect 
as it could be the team usually gets better 
year by year and there are the college 
records to aim at. During the past season 
seven college records were broken by the 
swimmers. That shows what you can do if 
you are a swimmer! 



Tennis 

Here is another sport that is developing 
under the fine coaching of George Fischbach. 
Throughout the spring several matches are 
held each week, unless they are rained out. 
Trips are taken up into Kentucky and all 
through Tennessee. During- the past season 
several four-day trips were taken and many 
trips of a smaller duration of time. Almost 



42 MARTVILLE COLLEGE 



all of the lettermen are returning next sea- 
son but this shouldn't discourage anyone 
for last season two of the first three ranking 
men were freshmen and several more fresh- 
men were on the squad. The college has 
only nine courts and these are usually filled 
in the early fall and spring months, so if you 
want to do . anything with tennis you better 
get out there quick. 

Cross-Country 

Because this sport comes in the fall during 
football season, it is not under the official 
guidance of any one of the coaches but one 
of the runners is usually captain and coach. 
Interest in cross-country is gradually in- 
creasing because of the inter-collegiate com- 
petition and the college cross-country 
championship. Last year's season was fea- 
tured by victories over University of Ten- 
nessee and Lincoln Memorial LTniversity. 
The cross-country college championship is 
held each year between the halves of one 
of the football games. The run is five miles 
long and the Y. M. C. A. presents the win- 
ner each year with a cup. 

Interclass Sports 

A great improvement was made last year 
in the intra-mural sports program. This 
program is sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. 
and includes everything from checkers to 
football. Some of the other sports included 
are: tennis, billiards, ping-pong, basketball, 
swimming, track, baseball, etc. Several of 
these are conducted not as interclass sports 
but as tournaments. 

This type of athletic competition is rapidly 
assuming a more important place in the 
athletic program of the college. Here lies 
the chance for you who feel that you do 
not have the time or the ability to go out 
for the varsity. There is no fear of varsity

imposed upon each other. 

THE WEARING OF MARYVILLE LETTERS 



Maryville letters and sweaters are to be 
worn only by those who have won them in 
one of the sports. Those winning letters 
will be so designated by the coaches. Any 
violation of this rule is frowned upon by the 
students and faculty alike. Any loyal 
"Scottie'' would never wear a letter unless 
he or she had won it. 

Any letter or monogram from any other 
school, whether it be high school or college, 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



may not be worn Avhile you are at Mary- 
ville. This rule has been violated several 
times. Maryville has no way of enforcing 
such a rule except by the will of the stu- 
dents. We hope your school spirit and loy- 
alty will not allow you to break such a rule. 
So leave all other letters and monograms at 
home and come to Maryville with the idea 
of having a. garnet "M" on your sweater in 
the near future. 

WOMEN'S ATHLETICS 



Point System of Athletic Awards 

Since the intercollegiate contests have 
been dispensed with, the point system has 
been adopted. Women are given an oppor- 
tunity to participate in every sport, and a 
chance to win the monogram, the small let- 
ter, or the large letter and sweater. By 
qualifying for basketball, soccer, indoor 
baseball, and speed ball teams a girl may 
win 30 points for each team. Additional 
points are awarded for sportsmanship, mem- 
bership on a squad, captain or manager of a 
team, and perfect attendance. In swimming, 
track, tennis, hiking, and aerial dart tour- 
naments, 50 points each may be won. High 
scholarship adds a certain per cent to the 
total of points won. The observance of 
health rules may total 25 points for each 
semester. In these activities sportsmanship 
is stressed as well as skill. 

Honors are awarded as follows: 300 points, 
Maryville Monogram (MC) ; 400 points, 
Maryville "M" ; 500 points, Maryville "M" 
with sweater.

COLLEGE SONGS 



The Alma Mater 
I. 

Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 

Pierce the southern blue, 
Proudly stands our Alma Mater, 

Noble, g-i'and, and true. 

II. 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars, 

Ever green appears; 
So thy memory fresh shall linger 

Through life's smiles and tears. 

IIL 

Lift the chorus, wake the echoes, 

Make the welkin ring! 
Hail the queen of all the highland! 

Loud her praises sing. 

Chorus after each stanza: 

Orange, garnet, float forever, 

Ensign of our hill! 
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater! 

Hail to Maryvllle. 

Note. — An erect standing position and an 
uncovered head are prerequisite to a re- 
spectful attitude toward the Alma Mater at 
a time when it is being played or sung.

Dear Old Maryville 

I. 

Near Chilhowee's mountain blue, Stands our 
Alma Mater true. 
Dear old Maryville, to thee we lift our 
song. 
•Neath thy cedar grove so fair. We shall 
breathe the mountain air. 
While with merry hearts the chorus we 
prolong. 

II. 

As the morning sunbeam's light Greets thee 
o'er Chilhowee's height. 
So our tribune. We as freely to thee bring. 
Youth's true homage full and free. We thus 
gladly render thee, 
Dear old Maryville, thy praise we freely 
sing. 

III. 

To thee, guardian of our youth. Faithful 
guide to light and truth. 
We, thy children, bring our songs of 
grateful praise. 
And when we shall leave thy hill, We shall 
ne'er forget thee still, 
Dear old Maryville, the scene of happy 
days. 

Chorus after each stanza: 

Sing we a song of our dear college home, 

Fondly we love thee still, 
And wherever we may be. Fond mem'ry 
turns to thee. 

Our Alma Mater, dear old Maryville.

The Old Pep Song 

We've got the rep, rep, rep, of old Maryville! 
We've got the pep, pep. pep, of old College 

Hill! 
We've got the strength to knock 'em stiff 
And never know the diff, 
For we're from Maryville of Tennessee, 

The New Pep Song 

Here we go! Here we go! 
Down the field to crush the foe, 

As the Scotties go marching along. 
Men of might! Men of fight! 
Orange, garnet, waving bright 

While we make the Hill merry with song 
Then it's hi, hi. hi. 
We'll win this game or die. 

Highlanders! Fight to the end. 
Rah! Rah! 
And we won't be done 
Until the victory's won 

For the pride of our hearts — Maryville! 

Bainonian Song 

Our strong band can ne'er be broken, 

Sing her praises high; 
Far surpasses wealth unspoken 

Sealed by friendship's tie. 

Bainonian! Bainonian! 

Deep graven on each heart; 
We'll remain unwavering true 

When we from college part. 

Theta Song 

Always to our Theta we will sing a song of 

praise. 
In our hearts we'll learn to love her through 

our college days; 
Theta! Theta! Loyal to you we'll ever be; 
Theta! Theta! Happy sisters we — 
Your memory lingers through the years 
Through all life's smiles and tears; 
Theta! Theta! True we'll ever be.

NOTES 



MARTVILLE COLLEGE 



Maryville College 

MARYVILLE, TENNESSEE 

One Hundred and Nineteenth Year 
Beg-ins September 15, 1937 



Marj ville Collegre is one of the im- 
portant church-relate<l instituti.ins of 
America, and seeks to be true to the 
noblest traditions of the association 
of education and relig-ion. Its Direc- 
tors are elected by the Synod of Ten- 
nessee of tlie Presbyterian Cliurch in 
the U. S. A. 

It is a Cliristian liberal-arts col- 
lege with the purpose of providing a 
general cultural education. It is not 
a professional or pre-professional 
school, although its courses form 
sound foundational preparation for 
professional study. 

Its fees are deliberately kept at a 
low figure for the benefit of those 
who might not be able to attend 
otherwise. This makes earnest co- 
operation on the part of all an es- 
sential factor. 

It desires to select its students on 
the basis of preparation, earnestness, 
capacity, character, and co-opera- 
tiveness.
